MARRIAGE BASED ON ANIMAL SIGN COMPATIBILITY?
Q I heard that luck changes after getting married and having children. Is it true that we should try to marry only animal signs who are compatible with us?
AYes. Thus according to Chinese astrology, different animal signs have different levels of affinity with others. Marriage is a life-time commitment and you want to make sure you marry someone that you have the greatest chance of getting along with. When you marry someone, your luck and theirs becomes fused together. the trajectory of your destiny path merges. From a luck perspective marrying someone whose animal sign is compatible with yours gives the union an advantage. The kind of luck generated is harmonious rather than clashing – and this goes a long way towards bringing stability to a couple materially and emotionally. The same logic applies with having children. Families that have children whose animal signs are compatible with their animal signs have a greater chance of staying close to each other and bringing happiness to their parents.
NEED TO RENOVATE IN THE SOUTH, SOUTHEAST AND SOUTHWEST
Q I want to build a separate house on our property for my parents. But I’m afraid of digging into the ground – the extra land is in the SE, South and SW, which have the Grand Duke Jupiter and Three Killings. Is it still ok to dig?
AIt is not advisable to do this but if you really have no choice, you can still renovate that part of the house as long as you do not start or end the digging in the Southwest or South sectors. Remember to select a good date (from the Feng Shui Calendar) and perform the ritual of offering plenty of incense to the local landlords and ask for their permission first. Also, chant the Noble Stack of Auspiciousness sutra on the day of starting. Throughout the renovation, offer incense once a week and request their co-operation to help things go smoothly.
BROKEN GOLD PENDANT
QI accidentally broke my white gold pendant that I love so much. Is it bad feng shui to wear a broken pendant? Should I just keep it or pawn it or trade in?
AYes it is very inauspicious to wear a broken pendant. If your have sentimental value attached to it then consider having it repaired by a proper goldsmith or smelted down to make a new pendant. Otherwise, you can trade it in for something new.
DEPARTING RITUAL BEFORE MOVING COUNTRIES
QI’m moving to Canada and wanted to know if there are rituals I can do before departure to ensure that the move is smooth.
AMoving countries is a big change in your life… and yes it is wise to do some rituals before leaving. Just before you depart, it is a good idea to offer some incense to the Buddha and spirit beings and ask for protection and a safe journey. So start by burning incense and walking clockwise around your home, pausing at all each of the eight directions and say “I offer this incense to the Guardians of the North [Northeast, East, etc]…”. Then chant the 21 Tara Praises three times. Ask for Tara’s help to remove all obstacles and make your journey auspicious! When you reach your intended new home, don’t forget to offer incense and rice to the local guardians there when you move in!
SHOULD I PLACE MY FENG SHUI CURE IN THE BATHROOM?
QMy bathroom is in North and this is where the number 7 star is flying to in 2016. Is it ok to put the Dragon Tortoise Totem in the bathroom?
AUsually it is best NOT to activate the bathroom or do anything there. Keep the bathroom door closed at all times as it will help to suppress the #7 star. Place the Dragon Tortoise Totem in the North corner of your bedroom or living room to ensure that the #7 star is dealt with. It would also be wise to stick the Anti-Burglary sticker on windows located in the north corners of your bedroom and living room.
LIVING IN A SOUTHWEST HOUSE THAT IS BAD FOR OUR KUA NUMBERS
QI heard that SW houses are very good feng shui. My husband and I are about to move into a new home and the front door faces SW. Southwest is a bad direction for the both of us; his Kua is 3 and mine is 1. How can we cure this?
AUnder Flying Star Feng Shui, Southwest-facing houses enjoy amazing luck during the Period of 8. But if the facing direction of the house/door is not good for your personal kua numbers, you need to build an alternative door somewhere else that faces one of your good directions, and then use this door. This is the best solution for the two of you. Another option is to keep the lights at the entrance on at all times. Fire energy subdues “total loss” energy and is also very good for strengthening the SW sector.
IS MY HORSE DAUGHTER CAUSING FIGHTS BETWEEN ME AND HUSBAND?
QI am a Water Ox and my husband is a Metal Boar. Ever since our Horse daughter was born, we’ve been fighting a lot more often. Is she bringing bad luck to our marriage?
AMy dear please get this idea out of your head right now. Your child is NOT the source of your fight with your husband. The Year of the Sheep has been a very quarrelsome year for everyone as the #3 star in the centre of the house brings quarrels! So you’re not alone. Also, do bear in mind that the first 5 years of being a parent can be tough for couples! You’re not sleeping so much and you have more expenses now. So please be patient and forgiving with yourself and husband as the #3 star has now flown into the NW making HIM more quarrelsome. Turn on the lights in the NW and place a red crystal ball in the NW. This will help to calm both of you down.
WHICH DOOR DO I CONSIDER AS MY MAIN DOOR?
QI have recently moved into a new apartment. The building main entrance faces South, and but my entrance to my apartment faces East. Which do I consider as my front door?
AIt really depends on which formula of feng shui you are using as different feng shui formulas use different door directions to determine their chart. Generally speaking if you using the East-West Kua Formula, then the door that you use to enter your apartment building as well as your apartment unit should be good for you based on your Kua number (which is calculated using your birth date). In your case, both doors (South and East) belong to the East Group directions. Hopeful ly your Kua number is 1, 3, 4 or 9 as these are all East Group Kua numbers and both these door directions are good for you. If you are a West Group person, then both doors do not bring you luck.
